    MARBELLA, Spain -- Mexico scored two early goals and beat Ukbekistan 2-0 in an under-17 international friendly on Wednesday at the Marbella Football Center.  Both sides used the match as preparation for the 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup that starts this month in the United Arab Emirates.

     

    Victor Zuñiga fired a shot into the upper-left corner to give the CONCACAF champion a second-minute lead.

     

    Nine minutes later, Brandoon Gonzalez made it 2-0, lacing an effort from the right beyond the goalkeeper’s reach.

     

    Following the break, Zuñiga had two opportunities to add to his goal account, but he struck one attempt wide after a brilliant solo run and the other was saved.

     

    The Tricolor, which tied the UAE 1-1 on Monday, will close its Spanish camp with a meeting against Ivory Coast on Friday, also in Marbella.
